8:10 am We hear Track 4: Vice Hole, in the 'Undefoot' series. Underfoot is a series of virtual audio tours by Liz Crash and Jinghua Qian uncovering the secret histories of Footscray. Two old friends, both long-time Footscray residents, bring an intimate lens to local history as we travel through the archives looking for people like us: queers, migrants, radicals and artists. Track 4: Under cover of darkness, queers, Christians, drinkers, firefighters, Communists, MPs, and Chinese laundry workers spar over who's a worker, and who's a threat. The battleground for solidarity is right here. If you would like to listen to the series, please follow this link underfoot
